Mission

Our mission at Holy Spirit School is to promote the message and teachings of Jesus Christ.  Students, parents, and faculty form a Catholic family of faith.  Together, we challenge our students to achieve their fullest spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical potential.

Statement of Philosophy

Holy Spirit School draws its energy from the gospel message of Jesus.  We live this by building a Catholic Christian community in our school, continually serving and reaching out to others.  We bring the hopes, plans, actions, and needs of our members before the Lord in prayer.

Our Christian atmosphere is the foundation for a comprehensive program of academic excellence.  The individual needs and diversity of each student are identified and addressed through traditional and innovative instruction.

History

Since opening its doors in 1953, Holy Spirit School has developed an outstanding reputation for a program of academic excellence in a Christian atmosphere.  Religious education and formation continue to be the primary purpose of our Catholic School.  This philosophy is lived out in a four-fold commitment to the message of Jesus Christ: building Christian community, serving others, reaching out to those in need, and bringing our hopes and plans before the Lord in prayer.
